Author has written 17 stories for Escaflowne, True Blood, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Sword Art Online/ソードアート・オンライン, Final Fantasy XIII, and Skip Beat!.

Hi, call me D... I'm just a fairly normal lady who enjoys fantasy/supernatural/science fiction. I will often get obsessed about something (read: anime, manga, book, video game or HBO series) and feel the need to write about it.

I enjoy love triangles, fluff, and dark (insanity/abuse) fics.

Time travel is my number one favorite topic.

I like to write strong female characters, so don't expect a damsel in distress.

OTP's: Kyoko x Ren, Serah x Noel (Noerah), Chihaya x Taichi, Ed x Winry, Hitomi x Van

Stories I've written/am writing...

Explosions: A Skip Beat! future AU fanfic inspired by the song by Ellie Goulding. (Kyoko x Ren)

Moving on... Without You: an alternate ending to FFXIII-2. Tragedy, action, deception and most importantly - romance. (Noerah)

Update 2014-07-10: I tried to write an epilogue but it was way too cheesy, and I usually love cheese. So I'm leaving the story as it is.

-=Synthetica Story Arc=-

A collection of one-shots based on Metric's Synthetica album.

Lost Kitten: an AU fic. As a cop, Lightning deals with a lot of low-lives. But tonight she runs into someone she could never forget - bringing back memories of her own mistakes. One-shot. Based on the song by Metric. (Lightning, no pairing)

Youth Without Youth: Follows the AU from Lost Kitten. The mysterious Snow recruits Serah and her friends on a raid to steal some of the new drug "Synthetica". One-shot. Based on the song by Metric. (Serah and Snow)

Nothing but Time: Follows AU from Lost Kitten and Youth Without Youth. Lightning fights with her conscience as Serah is arrested, questioned and charged with possession. One-shot. Based on the song by Metric. (Lightning and Serah, no pairing)

Up next: "Wanderlust" (Lightning and ???)

Thanks for your interest! XD

And don't forget to review!

p.s. Fun Fact: My usual sign-off "XD" is a double entendre because it can mean both a smiley face with closed eyes as well as kisses (like X's and O's) from me (D).

The Life and Death of Setsuka Heel by sqbr reviews

"Alyssa looked on with an enigmatic expression as Mog disappeared. You wouldn't know it by looking at her, but her heart was pounding."
